The Sideshow
  • A bear in Conifer, Colorado, was put down after repeatedly breaking into a number of local homes. Local NBC affiliate 9News reports the bear even once broke into a family's bedroom.

    But the Colorado Department of Parks and Wildlife (DPW) finally caught up with the bear after a return visit to the home of Jennifer Sherman. The bear broke into the Sherman's entry hallway by tearing off a window screen.

    "I don't know," Sherman told the station. "We don't keep anything open. The dog food is locked up in the cabinet. He did get in there in June and got the dog food out, so maybe he just remembered that it was there."

    Earlier this month, a family of bears broke into a home in Norway, drinking more than 100 beers and ransacking the home in the process. And while the owner of the home expressed some concern about the bears returning, locals there seemed to take the home invasion more lightly than Colorado authorities.

    Still, it's far from the first bear incident the DPW has had to deal with

  • Superman's online dating profile (Match.com)The comic book world is aflutter after it was revealed that iconic heroes Superman and Wonder Woman would become a romantic couple beginning in an upcoming issue of Justice League.

    As part of the marketing campaign for the new storyline, it was revealed that Match.com has posted dating profiles of the two heroes, created by the DC Comics creative team.

    "As a couple, they are a classic match of a high-testosterone male and the high-estrogen female and they have many cultural and biological traits that will fuel their romance," Dr. Helen Fisher, Match.com's chief scientific adviser, said to Yahoo News. "Although Superman comes from a different planet, while Wonder Woman harks from an isolated island, both are aliens to our modern world."

    The site also polled readers asking which superhero they would most want to kiss. Superman was the popular hero among female readers, with 76.2 percent saying he would be their first choice for a kiss. However, Wonder Woman came in a distant second place

  • Losing a wedding ring can move folks to great feats. (Isaac Brekken/Getty Images)The saying "one man's trash is another man's treasure," took on a near literal meaning after a New York City garbage man sifted through tons of trash to find one woman's missing wedding ring.

    But how did an expensive wedding ring end up in a trash pile? The New York Daily News reports that Danielle Carroll lost her ring, which was already a replacement for an earlier misplaced wedding ring, while at work. The 45-year-old teacher says she and her young students were using a "slippery hand cleaner" which must have caused her ring to slide off into a trash bag.

    "I was so busy that day and cleaning my hands constantly that I didn't notice I had lost the ring," she told the paper.

    Carroll tells the paper she awoke at 3:30 a.m., suddenly realizing the ring was missing. She and her husband raced outside to retrieve it from the trash but the NYC Parks Department had already picked up the garbage.

    Carroll left a note on a nearby Parks Department garbage truck, which read, 'Hello, I believe my

    Serena takes aim at pocket rocket as Venus finds Keys

    Top seed Serena Williams is aiming to shoot down Slovak pocket rocket Dominika Cibulkova in the Australian Open quarter-finals Wednesday, as resurgent sister Venus plays the generation game with teen Madison Keys. The American siblings, for so long a dominant force in women's tennis, will meet in a Grand Slam semi-final for the first time since Wimbledon 2000 if they win their respective last eight clashes. Serena, 33, has progressed in typical fashion so far -- drifting along until she needs to flip the turbo and power past an opponent -- while 34-year-old Venus has been a revelation after a long illness. Serena is chasing her sixth Australian title and 19th Grand Slam overall, which would take her to clear second after Steffi Graf's 22 on the all-time Open-Era tally, with Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova also sitting on 18.
